Western Buildings/Icons

Want to flesh out a western city for your game? Or add more variety for a Modern or Medieval city? (Many of the images can cross these genres.)  Include this set of 200+ city map images including 125+ building icons/symbols in your image library!  Art by the amazing artist/cartographer Keith Curtis.

You may publish maps using these icons–see the license below. Full list of buildings is also noted below.

Each image is a transparent PNG so it can be imported into many image and map editors, including Cityographer. (It has a paid version and a free version which limits how many custom map items you may import, number of residents it will auto-generate and a few other minor options.) Smaller buildings (houses, small shops) are generally around 200x200pixels.  Other buildings are larger.

To use them in Cityographer, unzip the file anywhere you’d like on your computer.  (Perhaps create a cityographer folder.)  Then when starting a new map, change the “use default map items” drop-down to “override map items” and use the adjacent file chooser to browse to the “___-mapitems.properties” file in the unzipped folder.

Also, if you wish to feature to place buildings automatically change “Use Default Data” to “Override Data”, then use the “___-gensettings.properties” file for the adjacent drop-down. You may also use the “___-linesettings.propeties” file when you change “Use Default Line Styles” to “Override Line Styles”.
